I didn't choose the Oils. They Chose Me.
I'm blessed to be in the business of deep transformation for the women I work with... guiding them to a place where they know and radically love their true selves, so they can surrender to their intuition and have the courage to step into the calling from their soul.
I had no idea that when my good friend sent me my first little bottle of Wild Orange from DoTERRA that these little brown bottles of beautiful plant essence delivered such profound transformation also.
Our body is full of chemistry, and essential oils are, at their core, natures finest chemistry.
Essential oils are a complex mix of aromatic compounds that selectively work with your body to create different outcomes.
So when I first inhaled that Wild Orange, I could feel it move through me (wait till you try it, you will see what I mean). Immediately my energy lifted and felt really open and excited to get on with my day. When I found out Wild Orange is the oil of abundance, you bet I was excited.
By the time I tried my second oil, Balance, I was hooked.
It calmed me and grounded me as we were going through a really challenging time with one of our kids health. I would roll the oil on the soles of my feet so it absorbed into my body quickly, then inhale some from my hands and take some calm deep breaths in order to create a stillness in the middle of the crazy.
Essential oils are called “essential” because they are the “essence”of a plant.
In the Middle Ages, it was believed that essential oils were essential for life, giving them the name that has lasted till now.
Whether it was the ancient greeks that wore rosemary garlands on their head to improve memory and brain function, or us in modern times, taking a cup of peppermint tea to calm our tummy; or lemon and warm water in the morning to cleanse the body, the essence of plants working with our body and soul is exactly what nature intended.
I had no intention of building an oils business....
I joined DoTERRA as a customer. No intention of sharing the oils with others or building a big beautiful business with them.
Yet within three months my world had changed dramatically because of them.
My oldest boy had stopped one of his night time prescription medications because he was sleeping better. My daughter Indi felt empowered by using the oils at school to help her feel more calm and in control.
We no longer had paracetamol or cold medicines in the house.
We were healthier, happier, more expansive and more in charge of our own physical and mental health.
I used the oils every day with my clients helping them open up to different parts of themselves and create real change. Clearing the internal shit, connecting with their intuition, opening up to speak their truths, healing old wounds and creating big impact from the heart. That's my work and the oils are now working alongside me every step of the way.
The universe made it mighty clear to me that I was to integrate the oils into my main business so other women and families could grow and transform just as we did.
However it wasn't enough to do it on my own, I brought a number of amazing women with me so we can build a mighty tribe of women all contributing to the movement of essential oils.
The movement is called Oily Bits and you can join our Facebook Group here.
DoTERRA was always the product for me BUT when I learnt about the company and the ways it creates change for communities all around the world, it captured my heart completely.
The oils are sourced from over 40 countries, with over half of those in developing countries. Through its co-impact sourcing model, DoTERRA partners directly with farmers in these nations to produce the highest quality oil whilst growing the services and the facilities in that area.
A community that farms vetiver in Haiti have running water from a well for the first time. DoTERRA built that well in partnership with the community, watch the video and have a cry here. Just one of the innumerable examples of the good that they bring to the whole world.

The Best Essential Oils
Not joking. DoTERRA essential oils are 100% pure. That is, they are ONLY the essence of the plant. There are no synthetics, derivatives or fillers.
Plants produce essential oils as a means of protecting against environmental threats. It is part of their immune system (how cool is that). We harvest our oils from the locations where the best results can be achieved.
Our Frankincense (the Oil of Kings), one of the big-daddy oils that creates healthy cell function and improves immunity is farmed in Somalia. Although it is notoriously difficult to do business there, Somalia was chosen as the essential oil from the Frankincense in that country has the right mix of compounds (there is the chemistry again) to create the desired outcome on the body.
DoTERRA have at its core the commitment to producing the highest quality product on the market.
EVERY batch of doTERRA essential oils is rigorously tested to ensure you and your family receive only the most pure, potent, and effective oils on earth. In fact, you can check out the quality report from those independent tests for any bottle of oil right here.
These oils are so powerful that one 1 freaking drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea. With 250 drops of oil in a 15ml bottle and 80 drops in the 5ml bottle, that is some seriously good value health and wellness care right there.
Have a squiz at the top 10 DoTERRA essential oils below to see what I mean.

So.....I'm ready to order.
That makes me bloody happy. DoTERRA operates as a member model. Just like Costco. You can buy retail, but I'm not keen to let you as with the wholesale model you get 25% off retail prices PLUS the ability to get free oils each month and earn points like frequent flier points. Basically it makes it a shit load cheaper than retail all up.
Your first years membership is $35 and each subsequent year it is $30 (and you get a free peppermint oil worth 28 bucks when you renew).
The big news is that if you buy a kit to start, not only are you saving a load more dollars because DoTERRA jam it full of value, the enrolment fee is also waived. Thats right... the cost of your enrolment is zip. zilch. nada.
